Ep. 163: Shannon Miles - Why You Should Dare to Dream

Maybe you envision being a stay-at-home mom and have no desire to continue in a career after children come to your family---or maybe you want to keep working a full-time job outside the home and the thought of spending all day at home with kids scares you to death. The real problem here is that most of us don’t think there is another option other than one end of the spectrum or the other. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to do both and be successful in both roles? There is good news and a...

Ep. 160: Shanda Kay - Simply Make It Count

When you're a kid, people often ask, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" My answer was always, "I'd love to be an artist." I never considered the fact that I already was one.

Ep. 159: Lauryn Williams - Learning to Pivot, a Skill Worth Winning

Do you have a plan for what might come “after”?

Today’s show explores how we can be effective in helping others through difficulties. Sarah Beckman...
